I must share a delightful story of one of my clients that I will call Jane. She is a pharmacist, in her early 40's and had gained weight, felt stressed and overwhelmed in life and knew it was time to do something different. I met her as she was waiting to hear about a new job, had started losing a few pounds and was ready to take care of herself on a deeper level. She was a working mom and had children, all the normal woman stresses with so much to do. She was neglecting herself.
We spent many weekend mornings doing what I call Nature Fitness. We went outside when the weather was cooperating, I began sharing with her through movement practices and just chatting, principles of her feminine body and energy. I teach ways to feel the experience of the right, peaceful oxytocin energy that we should be in most of the time. Jane was ready to look at things differently and she got all that I shared. She would leave with tools and actually use them every week! She would come back with stories of how she used them, how they worked and how it changed her experience.
Over time, Jane lost more and more weight without dieting. She learned to really enjoy, savor what she ate, have pleasure and listen to her body when she was filled. She became aware of how real food really supports her body. Noticing that much of the weight was stress and eating for pleasure for she was in exhaustion and strife.She got the job and left the old one which she realized was very negative. Jane saw how she could of just stayed there and pushed through as we all do. Yet leaping into the new opportunity, she realized she was so overwhelmed by the outside forces at work. Scary facing a new job, she used the tools to expand and find a new way with work.
Her marriage was having issues as well. We chatted about masculine and feminine ways, tantra and ways to see her issues differently as more of a man /woman thing than the two of them personally. As she cared for herself, all changed as well. Living differently with herself, she was able to really ground her family with her health getting in line.
I taught her of movement and oxygen nourishment. She learned easy, graceful ways to move in calm beauty that supported her physical health, her beauty and her body getting in shape. Cooperating with her body, giving it pleasing ways to move and get oxygen and use the healing power of nature to our woman self.
Her glow, as she comes each time, is just so astounding. She opened to a journey with engaging more in her sensuality, reveling more in her senses. Jane has begun experimenting with her pharmacy compounding creativity by making lotions and scrubs for her body, feeling the power of real food elements, no preservatives. Feminine ways of honoring the sacred body. She has engaged in essential oils and the power they have on her body, moods, alertness. Truly embracing her natural feminine nature to support her life in wellness.
She uses the stress clearing techniques often as she comes in contact with other negative people and situations. She stopped letting others energy drain and effect her. These are quick and easy tools that can change you in a moment. Taking control of what nourishes her from others and environments as well as food. Jane has learned to fill herself first and in doing so, her whole home is more ordered, peaceful and calm. She took control of her sacred space which woman enrich or allow havoc energy be the base of their home. Their energy runs it and others just react to our state. It has been the most beautiful experience watching her use and engage in her natural femininity.
I could go on and on but the base truth is clear. She has retrained her body to ride in oxytocin and allowed her natural feminine way to come forward and nourish her. They call this Shakti in the east. It is a well of lovely, flowing energy that is within us. However, we can't tap into it in speed. It is through the slower pace, parasympathetic nervous system that this creative well and joy comes out. I delight when a woman gets this, flows through playing with it and experiencing that life is magic and good.
I told her she has all she needs now. Her Shakti, intuitive sense is her gift of enjoying life. It is natural for us as woman to live in this grace and ease. We are not lazier in this slower way. we are clearer, still get all our things done. We just do them in a calmer, clearer space that actually gives us more energy. Of course, we will still gather and she will continue to enjoy her woman friends gathering. This is very key to ourselves as well. She is well on her way though, and this brings me such joy!
Get the glow for yourself! It truly makes life more magic! Jane exudes this glowing beauty like never before and it is enticing and alluring to bring in all she needs. I love it!
How lovely to Be Queen!
